Tumbleweed Baby is now available on Amazon!
Tumbleweed Baby is the first picture book by veteran children’s author Anna Myers, with illustrations by Charles Vess.
I got to read through a early version of this book earlier this year, and it’s pretty dang great.
From the book’s description on Amazon: “A large, loving family in the 1930s Dust Bowl finds a “tumbleweed baby”—a wild baby—in the plains near their cozy farm home. The baby’s new siblings discover the ways she fits and doesn’t fit into the family, ultimately deciding that her wildness makes her one of them. The rhythm and voice of the text make this feel like a classic tall tale, and it pairs perfectly with the dreamy, warm art from master illustrator Charles Vess.”
If you’re in the Oklahoma City area, you can get your book signed at the Tumbleweed Baby launch party on Tuesday, Oct. 14, 5:30-7 p.m. at Best of Books in Edmond. There’s going to be a readers’ theatre and refreshments, and Anna will be reading the book aloud. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and a great way to celebrate a fantastic new book.
Hope to see you there!
